Wow. You are gorgeous!!

But i also think there is too much foundation.. Apart from that everything else is beautiful!

I like your hait pinned back, It looks a little more romantic, a little more pink on the lips maybe!!

Your going to look beautiful!

She did warn me that it's quite heavy make-up but pays off in the photography... obviusly my little camera and fluro bathroom lights probably don't do it the most justice! laugh.gif
You are right there Chantelle, I am SO EXCITED!!! biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif wub.gif I will come back hopefully on Sunday or Monday will some non-professional pics, but will have to wait until May 18th for the professional ones when we get back from our honeymoon!

When I first had my makeup done (I didn't have a trial) I was a bit freaked about how 'foxy' my eyes looked. It wasn't the romantic look I envisioned but a sexier look. But it really worked on the day and defined my eyes in the photos. smile.gif I think you'll be happy with the way it works out.

I am hopeless with makeup. I really am, but you do need something to keep the makeup on. I think a powder or primer (can't remember what goes on after the moisturiser) but you want something for the staying power. Did your artist use anything?

I've emailed my sister and she knows all of that jazz! I'll get back to you when I know.

You look amazing though. If you had walked down the aisle last night you would have knocked everyones socks off! I wouldn't worry too much about the foundation - it was just an idea. The light from a flash is harsh on your face so the foundation probably didn't look like that in real life.

I hope the weather behaves for you on your big day. smile.gif

I love love love it!!

I think i like it pinned back like the others - but then again, you are smiling when it's pinned back....!! wink.gif

And i also think maybe a little bit darker on your lips - make them a little more defined?!

But you look absolutely stunning and i can't wait to see everything come together! smile.gif

Wow, you are sooooo beautiful! You could get married with no makeup and your hair in a ponytail and still look stunning!

I really like your makeup, the colouring really suits you, and I think the foundation is just right.

I love your hair all down, I really like the natural look. It does look great pinned back too; it looks a little more formal so it depends what look you want. Either way you'll be a gorgeous bride! smile.gif

Wow!! You look stunning in your 'everyday' pic smile.gif

but you look stunning in your trial too! Your eyes are so beautiful. I would prefer more blush and a tad more lipstick.

Your hair from the back looks identical to mine on my wedding day smile.gif I like it both down and pinned back. smile.gif From the looks if it (I'm guessing) that your hair is similar to mine too - same length, and very straight so I would use HEAPS of hairspray and product in your hair to keep it from dropping too much.

Wow, gorgeous biggrin.gif

My first thoughts were similar to everyone else, the foundation appears a bit yellow and a bit too matte, but the eye makeup is sensational!

I think your hair looks really foxy (thanx Telle for that word! ha ha) in the first photos, and more romantic in the second. It all depends what sort of look you are going for.

But it sounds like you're all sorted, the very best of luck for your big day!!!

Oooh you're so pretty - another vote here for it to be pinned back, just loosely like you had it. Love your curls - looks so pretty at the back.
Makeup looks great, love what she's done with your eyes!

I think you look lovely.

Your hair is a bit crispy looking for my liking but I'm a sucker for softer less stiff curls. I actually prefer your hair before it was done. It looks so soft and healthy.

Agree with the comments on your foundation.

You're a gorgeous girl and I'll sure you'll be a stunner on your day smile.gif

Crystal you are a stunner love!

If you are a bit unsure about your curls, what about big barrel curls, like say Christina Aguleria (sorry my spelling is crap today). Still have it pinned back as it shows off your face and neck more. You hair seems quite fine and I know what you mean about product. But I think barrel curls will give it more body.

I can't wait to see your photos.

I know what you mean about softer curls... unfortunately cuz I have no natural curl in my hair it's just impossible for me to acheive - I need all the product to hold them in! laugh.gif

I think it looks much nicer! I'm inclined to think you shouldn't fight your hair as it will only end up looking very stiff.

If your hair doesn't curl then perhaps opt for a wave similar to the effect you got when you brushed it out.

Your hair is absolutely stunning. Don't ruin it by smothering it with a can of spray!

Do the pinned back one with brushed out curls. Your face is too beautifull to not show it off.
